Nosler hunting ballistic tip, Barnes, anything with a bonded type bullet. 223 guys seems to put them down pretty hard with 52-55 grain bullets.

I've shot more deer, antelope, and one elk with a 22-250, Nosler ballistic tip 55 gr....everything headshots, but belive me, it will do a number.

I agree with Nimrodmar10 on the Federal 60 gr Partition. Shoots very well out of my Rem 700 and performance is excellent! Longest shot for me has been 290 yds, bullet entered behind left front shoulder at a slight angle and lodged under the hide on the opposite side. Perfect mushroom and a very dead buck! Just stay within the cartridges limits and shoot with confindence!

The Partition works good, Remington soft point works very good, Berger works great, Ballistic tip is very, very poor unless head shooting or out past the 400yard range. Been using a lot of the Bergers lately!!!
